VIOLET LEAF | Absolute

  • $120.00

Pure Viola odorata absolute.

Violet leaf (Viola odorata) absolute is distilled from the leaves of the wood violet (also known as sweet violet, English violet, common violet, florist's violet, or garden violet), a hearty herbaceous flowering perennial native to Europe and Asia, and which has been introduced to North America and Australia.

It is traditionally used in aromatherapy for its relaxing, soothing, and inspiring properties, to soothe stress headaches, nervousness, insomnia, rheumatism, poor circulation, and sore throats, and in perfumery as a fixative.

Violet leaf embodies the verdant smell of spring, the fresh vegetal aroma of tender green leaves covered in morning dew. It has cool aqueous facets, reminiscent of cucumber, with powdery soft floral undertones.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe, or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Store in a cool and dry area.
